I'd say you're pretty much on the money, but that's just me.

A good friend's son just came by with a 1980 MGB to ask my opinion.   There
was evidence on this former Florida car of rus on the top and bottom of  the
front fenders and on the doors.  Also the leading edge of the  bonnet.
Didn't see anything on the floors, but only made a cursory  inspection.  All
the rust had been poorly bondo'd and painted over.

Cracked dash top, broken windshield, Weber down draft, no OD, seemed to
idle pretty well.

The battery would not restart it when it stalled, so battery or alternator

Tappets a little noisy.

The top was fair, a roll bar  had been fitted, the seats had been  cheaply

The seller was asking $4500.00, and I suggested I would pay no more than
$2500.00 and figured it would take easily another $2000 to bring it to
decent rust free shape.

I'm copying my friend on this, so let us know the list's opinion, and if
anyone else has a decent deal on a decent driver, his son is interested.
